‘BJP can only offer communalism’, claims Shashi Tharoor

The BJP can “only offer communalism, tired scare-mongering over love Jihad and a hate-filled politics of division that will never go far in pluralist Kerala”, senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Sunday and asserted that the BJP’s high-profile recruit 88-year-old E Sreedharan cannot be the answer to the state’s political future.

He also dismissed suggestions that not having a chief ministerial face could dent the Congress-led United Democratic Front’s (UDF) chances in the Kerala Assembly polls and said the party is “richly endowed” with experienced and capable leaders, any of whom could assume the mantle of chief ministership.

In an interview with PTI, Tharoor said the trend in Kerala is clearly in favour of the UDF and he expects a “strong victory” when the results are announced on 2 May.
